Notes:This year is the 10th annual event is held in memory of Keith Mumford (March 11, 1968 - June 28, 2009.) Keith was a little bit of all of us but stronger than most, an ordinary guy who showed extraordinary character and determination to make the most of what he was given in life. Beginning with childhood Hodgkin's cancer at the age of 13, to the massive heart attack at the age of 40, through his 6-month struggle to survive, he was a man of courage. He was a youth tournament player who was always good for a couple of rounds, but not often the finals. Still he persisted. A high school player who gave his St. Christopher's School team the depth to literally dominate the Prep League in the mid-80s, he was an unlikely walk-on at Vanderbilt who gave that team an extra measure of character, determination, and love for each other that lives on today. Keith was a club player, who in recent years could compete with anyone. As a young man, Keith worked in the pro shops at Raintree and Briarwood, and taught tennis at Briarwood, at Salisbury, for the RTPA (now the RTA), and on the streets of New York. He was successful everywhere not because he had incredible ability, but because he had developed a special grace and purity...in his tennis strokes and his relationships. His wonderful spirit lives on through all of us who knew him and those who know of him.
